    What does owning an airplane, a bike and a Subaru have to do with the world is flat? Nice shirt....lose the hat. :)

    Look at the pistons in relation to the crank shaft.

    Had an aerodate Sunday... she freaking loved it... even our slight tailwind landing on a less than smooth turf runway... we had burgers w some of my old flying buddies and got done and I said “we got a few hours before I gotta be back, what u want to do?” She looked at me dumbfounded and said “let’s go fly more!” This is a first for me... I’m feeling a bit smitten

    The best way to start a long and successful marriage is by making sure she's enthusiastic about aviation. The first time we flew together, it was crazy turbulent but my (now) wife loved it anyway. That's when I really knew she was a keeper. :)

    I got so excited about the Avanti on the ramp last week.... apparently they're a dime a dozen lol. Took some pictures this time. The green one last week was prettier though:

The first is some quarry that is on the banks of the river. The second is looking south towards New York City with the new Tappan Zee Bridge in the foreground.

    Thanks! Yeah it was unreal. Even more unreal was the ATC work being done in that sector today. I’ve flown a lot in NY APPROACH control and today was the busiest I’ve ever experienced. The woman working 120.8 today was literally non stop for about the 20 minutes I was in her sector vectoring arrivals into HPN and LGA. Her work made the flight even more spectacular as I was able to listen to a true master of her craft in action while I just flew along taking in the scenery! I normally just thank the controller for their help but today I had to throw into my sign off “great work today” when she switched me to the next controller.

    Just got back from Page, AZ. Shoulda picked a day with lower winds...from Page to Vegas, headwinds at 8500 ft ranged from 30 to 44 knots, with paint-shaker turbulence to match! Nevertheless, yesterday's sunset flight over Lake Powell made the trip worthwhile.

    Page itself is pretty small...my hotel was on the far side of town, but only a 20-minute walk. Classic Aviation FBO is small, but top-notch. Lots of local traffic from professional sightseeing ops.

    Did you ever fly Page to Moab (Canyonlands field) route? Really worth the trip! After some weeks of flying in the area this was one of my last trips and I was amazed by the views :).

    And, just north of that (further towards the bottom of the picture, by the marina) is a pretty good, fun seafood restaurant.. been there quite a few times, but can't remember the name. I know because the first time I tried to find the restaurant, my GPS took me to Sing Sing. The food wasn't quire as good there.

    New GF :) I was just “dating” her till we went flying now I’ll use the term GF! She can’t wait to go again! She text me this week and said “ Is your 140 a standard 140 or a 140a?” She was reading up on em! Definitely keeping this one around!!!

    Not quite yet- but it crossed my mind! She wants to learn how to fly a bit even! I guess I better see if I need cylinder work this annual before I ring shop... piston rings may take the priority :) but yea I’m probably dumb for not asking then and there!

    I’m 40 she’s 29, most of my airport buddies are older than me, I asked if she wud mind going to piloted breakfast Sunday at the local diner but all the guys are older than me, she said “I’m a barber that’s what I’m used to- gotta have breakfast”. Definitely a keeper!

    Was just there over Labor Day weekend. Dropped off and picked up my daughter and her friends for a house boat trip. 4 trips over the Canyon. One day for some reason, I thought I'd fly out there mid afternoon. Had to dodge the t-storms and decent turb. Waited until after 5:30pm to fly back.

    Alittle photo enhancements.

    Yeah, those folk are always busy.
    That's why I never bother them when I fly through the NYC airspace.

    That’s an interesting take. ;) I was handed off to her but never bothered her a second and actually never talked to her besides signing on and checking off. I bet they’d rather be aware of you and able to talk with you than having no ability to communicate but I get where you are coming from Shep.

    No, I haven't. I'll certainly check it out on my next trip up that way. My Page trip was initially more ambitious...was gonna go to Monument Valley and maybe Bryce Canyon too, but I was so pummeled by the turbulence that I decided to scale it back!!

    Nice pic. What did you take it with? Has a little of a wide angle look to it.

    I just wanted to share a picture that was forwarded to me. This is a Dehavilland Turbo Caribou DHC-4A from Cape May Airport, KWWD. Check out those P&W PT6A-67T Turbines
